This&That combines everyday items, such as a bicycle handlebar, a chimney or cow ears, with the sophisticated beauty of blown glass. Different materials and production processes merge harmoniously to create a new, provocative synergy.

    Oh my God… Fabrica is like this nowadays.

    I believe it is time to give place to another designer(s) at Fabrica. This is so… bad. I’m sorry but it is.

    We miss Hayon days. Fabrica is not Fabrica anymore.

    Impressive and powerful work on so many levels; I feel a strong connection with the hammer that didn’t brake the glass. It’s is so touching. I’m sorry I ever said designer weren’t artists.
